I'm a little confused about the division between groups. I thought the
research subgroup will be working on topics that aren't bound by any
ongoing policy process or timeline, in order to give the group more
research freedom. Wouldn't topics 3 and 4 be dealt with by the PDP
subgroup? If not, what will the PDP subgroup be doing?
